Nokia may launch smartphones and VR headsets sooner than you think

It’s hard to be happy for either Microsoft or Nokia after the whole mobile division buyout. It’s been almost a year since the deal happened and we still don’t see a flagship Lumia from Microsoft’s administration. Microsoft is still entitled to use the Nokia brand until next year as part of the deal, and if you’re wondering what’ll happen next, today we get some details.

Two trusted sources close to Nokia claim that the company plans to launch smartphones in 2016, and this would just be the tip of the iceberg. The report also claims that once the Microsoft brand deal is over, Nokia will launch phones, and that we should also expect other products, including something focused in virtual reality. We’re not sure if these products will be launched under the existing business model that we see for the Nokia N1, which is built by Foxconn and sold only in China, but we do hope there is a broader scope for this particular approach. It’s also hard to predict if these products will run Android, but we’ll keep a close eye on Nokia’s Z Launcher to see where the project leads.

The Nokia N1 has proven to be a very elegant tablet in our first impressions, and we hope to see more of this in the products to come.
